Summary: I bought this after having bought the TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT AV500 Nano and finding that it only had a 100 Mbps connection. This device does have a gigabit (1000 Mbps) connection, but it still is not capable of even the 500 Mbps speed that it is rated for. I have two computers on my local network.
Summary: My situation: I purchased this product because I was having trouble getting a wifi connection in my bedroom. My house is a single story and is quite wide and all of the walls are constructed from solid concrete. The fact that my router is not in the middle of my house also does not help.
Summary: I've had a standard pair of powerline nodes that I've been running for years, and these new ones didn't really offer an improvement. I wasn't really expecting too much, because powerline is so subjective to your house wiring.
Summary: Having used 200MBps powerline adapters for years I have had extensive experience with them. You will never get the full rated speed out of any of these types of units due to the power lines themselves (house wiring). It is just expected.
Easier than running cable, but don't expect wired speeds.

Summary: I've used the 500Mbps TP-Link adapters for a year now. Installation was dead easy. I bought two pairs, and synched them all together. As long as you synchronize them at adjacent power points, they keep working when moved apart, even to different rooms / power circuits.
Much faster and more stable throughput than my older NETGEAR 85Mbps powerline kit.

Summary: I bought this powerline adapter kit to replace a very old NETGEAR 85Mbps powerline adapter kit (I bought that when the tech was new). I already had a good location to use this kit with since I was already using the 85Mbps kit before - Initially I paired the two adapters in this TP-LINK kit together...
Summary: I'm giving this product a 4/5 only because it's highly reliant on the quality of your electrical wiring and the distance you are going between units. My use case was to run ethernet from my office, where the modem and router reside, to my media center for my HTPC and Xbox One.
Summary: I have a large home and getting uniform WiFi coverage was getting to be a problem. After a few poor experiences with various range extenders, I decided to try the TP-LINK powerline connection to let me attach multiple full-function WiFi access points in different rooms in my home.
Summary: I got this so my daughter could play her Xbox Live without dropping. Working well so far. I'm not getting as great a throughput as hoped but, its due to my household wiring. Older home. In general works good. Easy to setup.
